Although being a photographer means you are in direct competition with every other photographer out there , I think it is very important to build a strong community and look out for one another. Our jobs as photographers are never secure, most of us live our lives one day to the next with out a guarantee of when our next job will be. I have always been one to help people to the best of my abilities, whether it be sharing knowledge our lending out equipment. Can you imagine what you would do if someone stole every piece of photographic equipment you owned. I for one would be devastated. Everyone deserves a little help sometime. Which brings me to the reason i am writing this, to ask for a little help. A photographer by the name of Ray Duker had all of his photographic equipment stolen,about 3,000 dollars worth.
Ray is a college student and it is that time of the year for tuition dues, leaving him strapped for cash. Instead of just asking for money Ray has started to sell some of his prints. I think it would be a nice gesture for those who have a few extra dollars to purchase some of Rays's prints. I am a huge fan of Ray's work and truly think he has a future in photography( granted he gets a camera again). If you would like to help ray out click HERE and purchase some epic prints.
